No longer the same
London, ON, March 2009

I first shot its old, nearly-abandoned beauty a couple of years back. When I returned on a cold, late winter late afternoon, it hadn't really changed all that much.
No more. I drove by a few months back and the building, whose second floor had long been forgotten - a common thing in downtown London, apparently...pity - was being rebuilt. A quick glance through the structure confirmed that it wouldn't look any thing like its old self once the cladding came down. I smiled at the prospect of old buildings being lovingly restored, and made a mental note to return with my camera.
Your turn: Why do we preserve old buildings?
